Punk rockers Bad Religion have released a video for their moving new single, "Wrong Way Kids," from the group’s 2010 album, The Dissent of Man. The song is an up-tempo, melodic tribute to the band and their fan’s shared histories as rebellious yet durable outsiders.
The footage begins in present day with lead singer Greg Graffin offering a knowing message of hope for Bad Religion’s fans:
“Even though they’re misfits,” he says, “There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.” A subsequent shot reveals a defiantly unconventional Graffin on stage with the band in 1984 counting down the song intro. From there it’s a surging beat, powerful guitars and signature sing-along chorus set against a nonstop montage of found footage showing the band’s rise from teen rebels to punk luminaries.
